Leathers, one of his sexting partners, crashed his “victory” rally. That must have been fun. It would have been more fun if he had won. His wife was not there. Maybe now she can file for divorce. He gave the one finger salute to reporters as a thank-you as he drove away. Not a real surprise since he was never a class act. However, it was a disappointment for reporters who were hoping for one of his famous sexts. Now CNN, NBC, and Today will have to find real news to report. I
am disappointed too. I can no longer make fun of him.
Eliot Spitzer, the former governor and John, also lost though he did get 48% of the votes. That just goes to show you that New Yorkers tolerate prostitutes over sexting. Public Advocate Bill de Blasio had 40% of the vote to avoid a runoff.
My hat is off to the voters of NYC.
I wrote about sex in the work place in my e-book, Leadership for New Managers: Book Two, http://smashwords.com/b/300090. Here is what I wrote:
“You have only to follow the news to see how powerful the sex drive is as a core value. Leader/managers need to be aware of this not only for their associates but also for themselves. It would be naive to believe that associates do not have sex in the workplace if the opportunity presents itself. This seems to especially true in male dominated professions and industries. It may take the form of sexual harassment, groping, verbal remarks, jokes, calendars or photographs, and even intercourse. The current state of TV and cinema seems to indicate that sexual misconduct in the workplace is acceptable, but it is not. In fact, it has ruined many careers and families and resulted in many lawsuits.”
I guess I should add that sexual misconduct has also lost elections.
